But we’re still here ready to welcome you to Niagara-on-the-Lake…

As expected, our favourite visitor, jolly ol’ St. Nick, came to Niagara-on-the-Lake on Saturday, December 14. It’s a standing date. On the second Saturday of every December, Santa arrives on schedule much to the delight of residents and visitors alike. Here are a few memories of his most recent visit captured by photographer Bill Watson. Enjoy!

Bundled up and warm.

Fun for the kids -- and kids at heart.
